No Metaphysical Disagreement Without Logical Incompatibility- Daniel Durante. Logic & Metaphysics Workshop 4:15 pm
No Metaphysical Disagreement Without Logical Incompatibility- Daniel Durante. Logic & Metaphysics Workshop @ CUNY Grad Center, 7314
May 6 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
The purpose of this talk is to defend the logical incompatibility of the opposing views as a criterion for characterizing disagreements as genuinely metaphysical. That is, I intend to argue that a specific dispute is a metaphysical disagreement only when the conflicting views are governed by different logics. If correct, this criterion would not only help to separate merely verbal from genuine metaphysical debates, but it also would ground an argument against deflationism, guaranteeing the substantiality and relevance of metaphysics. I intend to clarify the criterion, to present its basic foundations and commitments, to give some logical and metaphysical motivations for its adoption and some examples of its application. The …

Composition as Identity: A New Approach- Martina Botti. Logic & Metaphysics Workshop 4:15 pm
Composition as Identity: A New Approach- Martina Botti. Logic & Metaphysics Workshop @ CUNY Grad Center, 7314
May 13 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
I argue that the debate on composition as identity – the thesis that any composite object is identical to its parts – is deadlocked because both the defenders and the detractors of the claim have so far defended and criticized respectively something that is not composition as identity. After having made clear how composition as identity should properly be understood, I will set forth a new strategy to defend it.  The Logic and Metaphysics Workshop will be meeting on Mondays from 4:15 to 6:15 in room 7314 of the Graduate Center, CUNY (365 5th Avenue). The (provisional) schedule is as follows: Feb 4. Melvin Fitting, CUNY Feb 11. Benjamin Neeser, …

The Perception of Time in Intuitionistic Arithmetic (Vincent Peluce) Logic & Metaphysics Workshop 4:15 pm
The Perception of Time in Intuitionistic Arithmetic (Vincent Peluce) Logic & Metaphysics Workshop @ CUNY Grad Center, 7314
May 20 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
In L.E.J. Brouwer’s first act of intuitionism, the subject’s perception of time is put forth as the foundation on which arithmetic will be built. According to Brouwer, proper intuitionistic arithmetic, as with the rest of intuitionistic mathematics, is not tied to any particular formal system. When we try to axiomatically approximate an intuitionistic arithmetical system, we are faced with the problem of incorporating the subject and their perception into the axiom system itself. We discuss some unsatisfactory responses to this problem and then offer a solution. The Logic and Metaphysics Workshop will be meeting on Mondays from 4:15 to 6:15 in room 7314 of the Graduate Center, CUNY (365 5th Avenue). The (provisional) …
